NHS guidelines recommend that we eat at least two portions of fish a week, one of which should be oily fish. This is because oily fish are (excuse us while we get a bit scientific) the best source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. These are front-line fighters against heart disease, so well worth tucking into. Organic salmon fillets are also a great source of vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus, which help keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.
Unfussy cooking and salmon fillets are the best of friends. Grill, pan fry or oven bake your fillets until the flakes in the middle have just lost their translucence. Keep an eye on progress as you're cooking to stop the fish drying out – this is not one to serve well done. Serve with herby mash and lemony steamed veg. If you fancy trying your hand at homemade sushi, our organic salmon fillets are clean and pure enough to be eaten raw. Nigiri is a slice of seasoned rice topped with a thin slice of salmon, delicious dipped in salty soy sauce. Or get a bit more ambitious with sushi rolls wrapped in nori seaweed and filled with rice, salmon and soft avocado or crispy peppers.
